A 26-room heritage estate built by convicts almost 200 years ago is up for sale in the Hunter Valley.
The stately home, which spans 100 acres and is located south of the Hunter Valley town of Singleton, has hosted royalty with a visit by the Prince of Wales, who would later become King Edward the eighth, in the 1920s.
The Baroona estate, at 7 Range Road Whittingham, functioned as a working stud farm, grazing estate and homestead of the late 19th century, sits over a network of cellars dug by convicts.
Built in 1829, the property has had seven “custodians” over the years.
Current owners Tony and Gaylene Poke purchased the seven bedroom, five bathroom property in 2010 for $3.3 million.
It's also home to an observation tower, glasshouse, billiard room and Victorian gothic stable block.
Knight Frank’s Deborah Cullen and Colliers International Newcastle James Callinan are managing the expression of interest campaign.
“The estate is in pristine condition – it has been beautifully maintained and recently upgraded by the current owners,” Cullen said.
